BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:55 P.M.) – The new diesel-electric submarine ‘Krasnodar’ has joined the Russian Black Sea Fleet, docking at the Southern Bay of Sevastopol on Wednesday. Krasnodar is the fourth submarine of the Warszawianka type obtained by the Black Sea Fleet and is said to be among the quietest warships in the world.
The submarine departed the plant in St. Petersburg in May before making its way to the Black Sea.
It stopped by in Syria to aid the Russian military operation in the Middle Eastern country.
Cruise missiles were deployed and the submarine captain Stanislav Rzhitsky stated that “all that was needed was done and designated targets were hit in due time.”
Krasnodar is equipped with four cruise missiles launchers, six torpedo tubes, and portable air defence systems.
